Firstly thank you for those that have contacted me with RIBs for sale.
I would like to re-iterate that I am looking for a 5.5 - 6.0 metre only.
Must be able to seat a minimum of 4 people without use of suicide seat.
115-150Hp Optimax preferred but 4 stroke Mercury, Yamaha, Suzuki considered.
It will be taken to France so a good trailer is mandatory. Ideally looking for a RIB with an engine still under warranty.
A couple of RIBS offered to me later than 2005 have not been able to show a CE Certification. I am looking for a B or C Category hull.
See note below:
Because this RIB will be taken to France permanently I will have to register it there which requires a CE Certification. Does the hull have the Builders Plate with the following:
Boats from builders who meet the EEC directive will have two points of identification attached to the RIB:
Hull Identification with:
The HIN, which holds the following info,
should be moulded into the hull.
Country of manufacture
Unique serial number
Year of production
Builder’s Plate with:
Boat design category
Manufacturer’s maximum recommended load
Number of persons recommended to be carried
*It is a legal requirement that all RIBs are CE marked.
Ideally South Coast based.
Hopefully I can find something that meets these requirements, is priced sensibly looking for a cash buyer.
